She is the latest human robot that looks exactly like a real human. Jia Jia, the humanoid robot is not just scarily lifelike, it is very smart tool.
She was unveiled at a recent exhibition in China and people were left in shock how lifelike she looks. She has, as a result of that been called a ‘robot goddess’ by her hoards of online fans.
Dailymail reports that Jia Jia was greeted by many thrilled eyes as she stood near the entrance of the exhibition hall that hosted this year’s 2016 Summer Davos Forum in Tianjin, in a major port city in North China.
She was dressed in a traditional Chinese outfit, hairstyle, complete with a classic hairpin, and immediately caught the attention of passers-by.
This life-like cyborg is the brain child of Chen Xiaoping and his colleagues at the University of Science and Technology of China, who unveiled the technology yesterday in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui Province.
Her ‘brain’, which is essentially a huge online database, is connected to a cloud computing platform that allows her to enhance her ability to process emotions and speech as new data is uploaded.
Jia Jia can hold conversations with those who ask her questions and respond in less than a second. She is also able to make micro-expressions and recognise the facial expressions of others.
She is thought to be one of a kind in China, although in the past few years there have been other similar ‘smart’ robots made by engineers.
